Students who wish to withdraw from a class voluntarily, must contact the Front Desk by phone at 206.328.2200 or email at info@pratt.org and request to be withdrawn. Students who withdraw from a class at least ten days prior to its first meeting will receive a 90% tuition refund. Please note that all classes consider 10% of tuition to be a non-refundable deposit in cases of withdrawal. Refunds will be issued within 14 business days from the date of withdrawal. Students withdrawing fewer than ten days from the first day of class are not eligible for a refund.

What does it mean to be on Pratt’s waitlist?

As soon as a class fills at Pratt, additional students are put on a waitlist. If an enrolled student drops that class, waitlisted students will be contacted to see if they are still interested in taking the class.

Can I transfer out of one class and into a different one?

Pratt is unable to facilitate transfers between classes. If a student notifies the Pratt front desk of withdrawal 10 days more before the start date of the original class, Pratt can issue a 90% refund and the student can re-register for a different class either online or in person at their convenience.
